Great Camera But . . .

  • Summary: The features and performance of the D800 is unsurpassed in my opinion. Very very good camera. Very happy with the resolution. You can virtually crop to the smallest detail ( in RAW format ) without fear of losing detail. Beware of two major points: 1)Get a large memory card when shooting in RAW. Some images for me have exceeded 50MB plus. I have carried at least three cards of 64GB when travelling.

  • Excerpt: There is little point in reviewing something until you have got to know it well. So I have held off reviewing the D800 until I felt comfortable I could give an honest, rounded opinion. I should also explain that the D800 is not the only DSLR I own - and for much of my commercial work I currently use a company D7000 converted to FS. My first DSLR experience was a D200.

the d800 - the luxuary camera of dslrs

  • Excerpt: My uses for d800: - portrait and wedding gigs- quality prints for art galleriesI left my Canon 5dmk2 for this camera. It fits all my needs in one body. I'm able to shoot any type of gig with this camera, and never have to worry about poor lighting conditions anymore. The file sizes are big but with a proper workflow you won't think anything of it. The main reason I bought the d800 was for the ability to make large high quality prints from it..
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD

Nice heavy duty, fully featured camara.

  • Excerpt: The D800 is a very good camera. If you are a reasonably proficient photographer this camera will serve you well. It is very capable. I don't like the trade offs it makes in auto mode. But the other modes are Easley accessible and easy to use. My favorite mode is manual with auto focus and auto ISO. I often use this setup with (shutter/exposure) bracketing.I am fairly knowledgeable but not an expert photographer.
  • Pros: Good ergonomics, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good Low Light Capability, Heavy Duy And Heavy, High ISO Performance
  • Cons: Lagshutterwi Live View, Short Bat Wi Live View

The very best of Nikon for landscape

Terry, J&R
2 May 2013
  • Excerpt: First of all, I am just a photo enthusiast who shoot travel landscape for most of the time and occasionally environmental portraits and wildlife. Before this D800, I was using a DX-format D90 which is a classic. When I decided to upgrade to full-frame DSLR, I was hesitating among D800, D4, D3X and Canon 5D3. Since I was already sort of married to Nikon, I did not want to bother with a whole new system of Canon.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, High Resolution, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Big File Size, Short Battery Life, Slow processing

  • Excerpt: I transitioned from the D700 to the D800 relatively late compared to most people here. The D800 in this review was a Canadian version bought in mid April 2013, roughly a year after it was announced and was widely available. In the past, my D700 has been used primarily for event photography. And it is a phenomenal tool for such a purpose. But I have given up that side of photography, and have been experimenting more with landscape photography and video.
